Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    -2 tbsps olive oil
    -1 large onion, finely chopped
    -1 clove garlic, crushed
    -500g lean minced lamb
    -125g Yamas! Mild Feta, crumbled
    -2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs
    -1 egg, beaten
    -Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    -1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into thin strips
    -1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into thin strips
    -2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
    -1 tsp sugar
    -300g dried spaghetti
    -4 tbsps freshly shredded basil


Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion and garlic. Cover and sweat the onions over a medium heat for 4 minutes, until softened. Transfer half the onions to a large mixing bowl.

Add the minced lamb, 100 g of the feta and egg to the onions in the bowl. Season well, then mix together. Shape into 20 meatballs.

Add the peppers and meatballs to the onions in the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the meatballs are lightly browned all over. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and sugar. Season and bring to the boil. Partially cover with a lid and simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile cook the spaghetti in a large pan of boiling salted water according to pack instructions. Drain well and return to the pan to keep warm.

Stir the basil into the tomato sauce. Divide the spaghetti between 4 pasta bowls and top with the meatballs and sauce. Sprinkle each with the reserved crumbled feta.
